Standard, schema from h to h/2

JucherVBQR 17 Standard Schema jpg

Ratio of heights

This is an schema to draw and standard. I do not use a fixed geometry, but in this case, I draw a 1/2 ratio between hightest side h at the flagpole and the diameter d of the circle on the end (see the lines and text Gules in the schema). The lenght of the standard depends on the bearer range and the kingdom, there are tables, but I only use them under the bearer instrucctions.

How to split the motto

Be aware about how to split the motto, the 1st line on the left (from the observer point of view, the heraldic dexter) and the 2nd line on the right (from the observer point of view, the heraldic sinister).

Coat of arms inside the standard

The coat of arms is near the flagpole and I use to make enough space for a shield with a 5/6 ratio between its base and its height (lines and text Vert in the schema).


Style keywords: Freehand.

Classification: Bandera, Personal and Schema.

Bearer: Juchter van Bergen Quast, Rudolf.

Quarterly Or and Argent and quarterly Gules and Argent, comparison

Quarterly Or and Argent, schema

The rule of tincture, «metal should not be put on metal, nor colour on colour», is the most famous rule of the heraldry. In the divisions of the field, for example, party per fess, party per pale, quartered, etc., the tinctures are beside each other, not one on top of the other, because the divisions are not charges, so the rule of tincture does not apply. Although as a rule of aesthetics may be useful in the case of divisions.

Alexander Nisbet, schema

NisbetA 24 AngreladoAcanalado Esquema jpg

Bordure invected and bordure engrailed.

Painting inspired in [Nisbet, A.; 1816; page 21, pictures 1 and 2], but with the 3 boar's heads of Alexander Nisbet within the 2nd bordure invected.

Blazon writen by the College of Arms for the coat of arms of Michael John Huxley-Evans «Per fess nebuly Sable and Ermine in chief a Rose Argent barbed and seeded proper within a wreath of Thorns Or in base three Boar's Heads erased Sable armed Or.», but to differentiate from the «armed» of the claws, I prefer «tusked» to «armed» for the defenses/tusks of the boar's heads.


Blazon keywords: Bordure, Invected, Engrailed, Head and Boar.

Style keywords: Semi-circular.

Classification: Schema.

Bearer: Nisbet, Alexander.
